We are back at the cabin after 2 weeks on the road. The first week (or almost) was the trip to Winnipeg that was mentioned in the prior posting. After returning from Canada, we parked the motorhome at the cabin, got a night’s sleep, and left for the Twin Cities, stopping for lunch with Joyce in Duluth on Friday, the 14th. Once we got Valentina home, we headed for our home-away-from-home, Brett’s place in Elk River. With all of the road repair going on, that 34 mile drive took more than an hour.
The next morning, we stopped at Denny and Dianne’s place on the way to Don and Peggy’s wedding near Pemberton that afternoon. The wedding turned into quite a family reunion with all of Bob’s siblings, plus a few cousins and an aunt and uncle.
A good time was had by all. Congratulations Don, and welcome to the Riewes Peggy!
Then it was back to Brett’s place the same day. At this point we’ve put on about 850 miles in 3 days. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday were filled with appointments and meetings (Drs, Dentists, and advisors, plus Ron’s birthday at Pam's place). We also spectated at a hockey tournament and one hockey practice. We didn’t keep track of those miles! Thursday was another 200 miles or so, back to the cabin, so on Friday we didn’t leave the peninsula. We just had a walk around the point.
Just thinking about it brought the title to this posting.
Summer came when we were in Canada, and it lasted through the weekend. Then the showers and cooler air came in. We ran the fireplace yesterday and the baseboard heaters today, so it is beginning to feel like fall already. Hopefully we will have a couple more summer-like days before we leave in a month.
